David Nathan QC and Paul Williams obtain Not Guilty Verdicts for the lead Defendant in Murder and s.18 Trial at Southwark CC

After a 3 week Trial, the jury accepted the Defendant was acting in lawful self defence when he used a knife to stab 2 men who were part of a group confronting the Defendants late at night in an altercation at the Elephant and Castle tube station: One man died from his wounds and the other was seriously injured. The Prosecution case was that the Defendant, along with his younger nephew and

Co-Defendant, lured the group into a trap on a stairwell and then attacked them with knives: The Jury plainly rejected this alleged scenario by their verdicts of Not Guilty of all charges
